Universal Wins Big Ruling in Copyright Lawsuit Over In-Flight Music

Getting record labels to sign off on licensing is tricky. That’s nothing compared to winning a case over the lack of licensing where the target is moving.

Universal Music and Capitol Records have navigated the complexities of international air travel to score a summary judgment ruling that when it gets to a jury next month to decide damages, could be worth hundreds of millions of dollars. The defendant in the lawsuit is IFP and parent company Global Eagle, a worldwide provider of in-flight entertainment from movies to songs.
